“Whatcha Say?”

Dorothy Dandridge is one of the greatest stars that ever lived. I defy anyone to try to watch her and not be fully drawn in and seduced by her charm, wit, and beauty. If it wasn’t for racist tendencies she’d be as well known as Marilyn.

It was on this day, 43 years ago, that Francis Ford Coppola and friends, established Zoetrope Studios in San Francisco.  Indie owes it heart to them.
